The purpose of the 3rd Grade Commitment Family Toolbox is to provide families with the basic information necessary to better understand literacy in order to build upon the natural learning opportunities that occur within a child’s daily routine in the home and community. The resources contained in this toolbox provide encouragement and understanding to families and caregivers in supporting the early language and literacy development of children in their care.
Parents and teachers fear the dreaded summer slide. While summer is a time for fun and lazy days, encouraging kids to read is proven to make a difference for them in their upcoming school year. These summer reading resources and programs are a great way to offer kids an incentive to reading over the summer months for a chance to win some fun prizes.
